2 Cents
idk Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Cute face, nice ass, but she's schemin' on the low
I just cut to the chase, ask her, "Do you want the pole?"
New friends? No way, they be schemin' for the dough
Ring the bell, I open up, see they face and close the door

I got my own two cents, if you know what I mean
I got my own two cents, if you know what I mean
I take the check over the trip, if you know what I mean
I pick the mortgage over rent, if you know what I mean, yeah

Me and all my niggas is winnin' (okay)
'Member back when I could never say what I'm dealin' (alright)
Nowadays I text my lawyer, ask what the deal is (what the deal?)
He text me back and say that shit is over a million, ayy
I might forget to reply ('ply)
Too many messages, most of 'em read (read)
I'm a popular guy (guy)
Why? IDK why (why?)
Always dividin' the pie (the pie)
But slappin' the hands of the ones that show up to the party
Expecting a slice (slice)
Please don't be one of them guys (guys)
Drinkin' was never my vice (nah)
But I done been celebratin' so much
These days I'm seein' twice (twice)
Guess it's one of them nights (uh-huh)
I'm takin' one of them flights (uh-huh)
That let me recline to a bed (the bed)
Out when they cut off the lights (the lights)
Up when they cut on the mic, like (like, like)
We bought the land and I hope you enjoy this shit (ayy)
I walk in the party and everyone know my shit (ayy)
You bought a line and you lookin' all blown and shit (right, right, right, right)
You ain't on my list so you pointin' is point-a-less

Cute face, nice ass, but she's schemin' on the low
I just cut to the chase, ask her, "Do you want the pole?"
New friends? No way, they be schemin' for the dough
Ring the bell, I open up, see they face and close the door

I got my own two cents, if you know what I mean
I got my own two cents, if you know what I mean




I take the check over the trip, if you know what I mean
I pick the mortgage over rent, if you know what I mean
